Letters from Br. Błażej: Night 289
December 10, 2022
Thank God we have some peace. Even more electricity, light, heat. Thank God for everything. The regular war in the east and south of Ukraine continues. People are dying.
God, be merciful to them.
The Word… A short word from the Responsorial Psalm and it is on me living in war very comforting and hopeful: “Renew us, O God, and give us salvation.” It is God who is to renew us, to return us to life, to normalcy. Only God, even from war, from death, can and does bring out good for me. Ps. 80: “Raise up thy might and come to our aid.”
Come, Lord Jesus! We pray for a just peace! God is love!
We live in war, we do not live by war!
